While not clear in the spy photos, the 2021 Skoda Karoq is expected to adopt a new grille design, with revised front and rear bumpers, and updated graphics for the head and tail lights.
The model should also pick up Skoda’s newest infotainment system and engine upgrades to reduce CO2 emissions – however the engine upgrade may not make it to Australia.
The Australian-delivered 2020 Skoda Karoq missed out on a more fuel efficient 1.5-litre engine mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission option, due to European demand for the powertrain. Instead, local models received an older 1.4-litre unit with an eight-speed torque converter automatic.
The 2021 Karoq will mark four years of the model since it replaced the Yeti in Skoda’s line-up.
